    No comment, none needed. The truth hurts.

    Reagan insider: GOP destroyed economy Paul B. Farrell - MarketWatch

    "We've arrived at a historic turning point as a nation that no longer needs outside enemies to destroy us, we are committing suicide. Democracy. Capitalism. The American dream. All dying. Why? Because of the economic decisions of the GOP the past 40 years, says this leading Reagan Republican.

    Please listen with an open mind, no matter your party affiliation: This makes for a powerful history lesson, because it exposes how both parties are responsible for destroying the U.S. economy. Listen closely: "

    "In the past 40 years Republican ideology has gone from solid principles to hype and slogans. Stockman says: "Republicans used to believe that prosperity depended upon the regular balancing of accounts -- in government, in international trade, on the ledgers of central banks and in the financial affairs of private households and businesses too."

    No more. Today there's a "new catechism" that's "little more than money printing and deficit finance, vulgar Keynesianism robed in the ideological vestments of the prosperous classes" making a mockery of GOP ideals. Worse, it has resulted in "serial financial bubbles and Wall Street depredations that have crippled our economy." Yes, GOP ideals backfired, crippling our economy.

    Stockman's indictment warns that the Republican party's "new policy doctrines have caused four great deformations of the national economy, and modern Republicans have turned a blind eye to each one:"

    We only need to follow the years the Republicans were in power. Every single time, there follows a sharp decline in the economy.

    One wonders where they get this need to turn rich people into "deities" and "corporations" into a type of "secular church" in who they give all "trust".

    Republicans trust BP and Hugo Chavez owned Citgo and Arab own Fox news over the US government. A government made up of "citizens" and neighbors we "vote" for. At least they are honest enough they won't deny it.

    Stockman is right! Those Republican Social Programs are draining the budget!

    What's the exit strategy for the Republican "War on Poverty"? We're fighting it since Republicans passed it in the 60's!

    Congress is in charge of spending our tax dollars in a wise manner, and every time theres been a republican dominated congress, we have huge economic booms. End of story.

    Actually the Decline began around Jan of 07, At the same time a Democrat Congress came into power.

    The Sub Prime Crisis ruined the Economy, and that was Both Parties Fault. Do I need to get the quote of Barny saying how fine and Dandy Fanny and Freddy were? Decades of encouraging Everyone to get a house, even if they could not afford them. No money down deals, Flip this house. All this was a result of our Government Policy toward The lending Industry. Both sides were at fault in that as well.

    You guys can keep trying to lay this Economic Crisis at the Feet of Bush. The Fact is the Initial Crisis can be blamed on Every Congress and President for the last few Decades. The Disastrous way in which it was handled. Starting with Tarp That Bush Signed and OBAMA voted for. and leading all the way through this last Spending bill passed today.

    You can keep crying it was Bush but Americans can see the Truth my Friend. Bush, and Many Others Fucked shit up, and Obama is Clueless and is Fucking it up even Worse. Period, end of Story. And as I heard a person say the Other day. We can see November from our houses. :)

    Every one knows that Obama destroyed the economy and is responsible for every bad thing since the day he was born.

    Fox has failed. Most americans hold republicans responsible for the financial failure.

    Most Americans don't know FDR and the Democrats ran the Tuskegee Experiments, think LBJ was a great civil rights leader and think Progressive Social Programs run on hope and change instead of money

    Your partisanship clouds your vision. Your very source is bent on allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire.

    ALL of them. The $100 billion/year that effect the wealthiest 2% of Americans. AND the $200 billion that effect the rest of us.

    The dems want to sustain the larger share of the Bush tax cuts. In clear violation of your sources resolve:

    Stockman: Bush Tax Cuts Will Make U.S. Bankrupt : NPR

    pleased to rain on your partisan parade.

    Here is a tip: whenever you approach anything from a partisan position, you will always be 100% wrong.

    Always. 100% of the time.

    Dems are evil liars, repubs are evil liars.

    Partisans are always evil liars, always, no exceptions.

    Never, ever, trust a partisan with 2 vowels and 3 consonants.

    Better to be eaten alive by Goldman Sachs execs than to allow uselessly stupified partisan grunthogs to inform your opinion.
